case and the election case, but 30 republican governors, they are vital to creating a state run exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of

, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se

of blue states in there that voted for obama. at the other end of the scale are people that are in poor states, in the south and southwest. those states will see a big tax increase and largely because they benefit from a lot of things like the child tax credit, many refundable credits, a payroll tax cut would be most disproportionate to them. lori: i said the child tax credit is your claim to fame. do you think that will continue? >> i do think so. we ought to worry about the fact that so much of it is refundable which means even if you don't pay any income tax you still get a tax rebate from the irs and the irs is giving out $100 billion the year in refundable tax credits. i look to that to be a big part of the negotiating between the white house and republicans. should we put these people back on the tax roll, part of that 47% that no longer pay income tax? lori: what is the worst-case scenario if we get the fiscal cliff? >> it would be terrible. we have done the economic modeling on this. we see this would have a severe impact on long-term economy, about the equivalent of four hurric

, the current secretary of state hillary clinton has said she will step aside after president obama begins his second term. ambassador susan rice has reportedly emerged as the frontrunner for the position. at least that's the trial balloon that white house officials are apparently floating to the news media analysts describe her as a hard nosed diplomat who shares many of president obama's view on foreign policy. as you may recall, after the consulate attack, ambassador rice hit the sunday talk shows and claimed that that assault started as a peaceful protest over a viral anti-muslim video. she said at the time that militants hijacked the protest and killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. we now know that story is not true. shannon bream is live in washington with more. shannon, could that initial response keep secretary rice from being nominated to head the state department? >> well, shep, there are some who think that the comments ambassador rice made in the days just after the deadly benghazi attacks will amount to nothing more than a few awkward questi
